On an average, children grow about two inches each year between the ages of three and early adolescence, release of growth hormone is at its peak at adolescence when accelerated growth occurs, but growth hormone levels fall steadily on reaching adulthood, and the body stops to increase height.
Our body constantly generates Human growth hormone, throughout our life and carries out the process of cell rejuvenation persistently. Some individual related factors like improper nutrition, lack of sleep or parental pattern may hamper secretion of growth hormone. Catching the right nerve i.e. identifying and correcting the inhibiting factors may facilitate generation of growth hormone and positively influence the height.
In children where the Ossification process is yet to be completed, nourishment of bony and cartilaginous tissues helps in lengthening of bones in the lower body as well to some extent.
There is a certain age at which people usually stop to grow : men —21 yrs, women —18 yrs. It occurs shortly after puberty, but these numbers can be changed. One thing for sure the older you are, the harder it is to gain height.
Your aim to gain height can be achieved by Ayurvedic medicines along with therapies likeAbhyanga, Basti and Nasya. Proper nutritional supplements and specific exercises add to the results.
